I was sure, that Strasbourg had to be on the list. But in fact, in wasn´t that big - only about 150.000 inhabitants.

I was gonna say that Strasbourg is French (which it is), but I looked it up and it seems the city has changed hands quite a few times between 1871 and 1944. What do you know? This stupid urge to stick it up people's noses can come in handy from time to time.

Interesting - seems like most cities gained in population, except for for cities in the east of Germany

Losing Prussia, Pomerania, and Silesia would have been a pretty big deal to say the very least. It's also interesting to see just how much the Ruhr valley region has grown.

They didn't lose Prussia - Prussia basically took over or allied with all the other German-speaking states and called it "Germany".

You're thinking of the Holy Roman Empire. Prussia founded the German Empire, but after 1945 was lost to Poland and Russia.

Prussia originated in what is now Poland and Russia, but it took control of various (still) German territories. From 1701 on, its capital was Berlin and it existed as a kingdom or free state within Germany until 1932 (here's a 1925 map); the Allied forces dissolved it for good in 1947.

I feel Koenigsberg should be accepted for Konigsberg

Managed to get 4 points. Most obvious one I messed was Bremen.
